working with cpcp
We customize services that meet varied needs.
This can include:
The practice of partnership
Cross-sector translation tools
Navigating projects and collaboration from initiation through sustainability
Equitable and authentic community engagement through a practice of listening
Creative assets aimed at community change
We have worked with national networks (LISC, ArtPlace America), government bodies and departments at the local and state level (Kansas City, MO, Chicago Parks District, City of Phoenix, City of Nashville), local and national foundations (Nathan Cummings, Doris Duke, James Irvine), Universities (Virginia Tech, University of Iowa, UMKC), arts and humanities councils (States of IL, AZ, AK), non-profit community organizations (Housing Authorities, United Way, LGBTQ Centers, Immigrant Rights), and arts institutions/service organizations (Old Globe Theatre, League of American Orchestras, Americans for the Arts, the NEA).
"CPCP has been an important partner in helping our team examine our own work. Rebecca, Sona and Michael push us to consider how we are benefitting from, contributing to and now working to dismantle racial inequities in our work. It is vital that grantmakers begin this internal work before they expect it from their grant recipients.
We are better equipped as a staff to live our value of equity as a result of our work with CPCP."
– Jill Paulsen, Interim Executive Director, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture
"The work of CPCP continues to be of enormous value to the Old Globe Theater. By facilitating questions around our values and our commitment to them we were able to transcend decisions made from intuition. We coalesced around big ideas and developed a shared language. This language guides us in service of the public good. It’s transformed the way we view ourselves and our role in society."
– Freedome Bradley-Ballentine, Director of Arts Engagement, Old Globe Theatre
